here with a round—up of the news today, but first it is time for newswatch. hello and welcome to newswatch with me samira ahmed. the tables have turned as donald trump accuses the media of spreading untruths about him. it is all fake news, it is funny him. it is all fake news, it is fu n ny stuff, him. it is all fake news, it is funny stuff, it did not happen.“ thatis funny stuff, it did not happen.“ that is the case, why is bbc news giving so much time to the allegations about the president—elect? anything donald trump says 0rdaz has been intensely scrutinised in the build—up to his inauguration next week. and when see all eyes were on his first press conference since the election and it did not disappoint. take a moment when a reporter tried to ask a question. go ahead. not
9:32 pm
you. your organisation is terrible. go ahead. the quiet. the quiet. do not be rigged. do not be rude. i am not be rigged. do not be rude. i am not going to give you a question. you are a fake news. could you state categorically... after that you are a fake news. could you state categorically. . . after that attack on cnn as a fake news agency, would other correspondence be brave enough to raise their hands. go ahead. as faras we to raise their hands. go ahead. as far as we understand the intelligence community... i am from bbc news thatis that is another beauty. if there was more than a hint of sarcasm in that description, the president—elect
9:33 pm
would not have got the bbc‘s coverage was beautiful. the dossier they were investigating was an open secret. journalists had been working on it for months. it is a tale of sordid sexual escapades, russian stb be announced an money been funnelled to the charm campaign. the question is whether it is fact, part fact, pulp fiction. it is not no if the rumours i've fact or fiction, but the bbc heard last year about a blackmail tape. but why did they not broadcast that news? are those were concerned about the
9:34 pm
extent the allegations. —— another person was concerned. it was the website bugs feed that published the 35 page dossier on fool on tuesday evening. while it was impossible for the bbc to ignore it, some people felt that dominated the bbc‘s coverage. the editor of the bbc‘s news at six
9:35 pm
and ten is poll royal who's me now. it has been a big revelation that the bbc was aware of a black one tape. —— blackmail tape. why did the bbc decide not to >> reporter—macbbc became aware became aware of the existence of this dossier and these potential allegations. we have robust editorial processes that we go through in terms of verification and trying to substantiate the allegations. we could not and they we re allegations. we could not and they were unproven so we did not publish them. as they saw this week, but
9:36 pm
mike decided to publish the dossier and they had their own editorial rationale in case for that. given that these allegations are not verified, should the bbc be reporting on them at all? what happened on tuesday became a story and we were very careful on wednesday to cover the story that was playing out, but at the same time to be quite general about the unproven allegations. we were careful about that. 0nce unproven allegations. we were careful about that. once on us networks started reporting the story, donald trump treated about that overnight. there was a story on wednesday morning that we had to cover and that was obviously the main part of his news conference that afternoon. it at the same time, we we re very that afternoon. it at the same time, we were very careful. 0ne
9:37 pm
that afternoon. it at the same time, we were very careful. one of the correspondent said that in fairness to donald trump we're not going into detail about the allegations. to donald trump we're not going into detail about the allegationsm they turn out to be false, will the bbc be in a difficult situation?” don't think we will be because of the care we took on wednesday and after that to make sure that we were not recirculating lots of detail about something that is unproven. i'm happy and i think we will be in a good place. there are numerous serious allegations being discussed about president—elect trump's links to rush hour. how will the bbc report on that? we will test what is true and what can be substantiated, what is worthy of further investigation and analysis, so we have a tried and tested process for that built up three years and decades. is that related to sources
9:38 pm
and how many routes were since you have? as you know there are two sources on all bbc stories. we're sticking to our editorial guidance in this unique period of covering news. we heard there is saying that there were different issues raised at the news conference and yet the only one that really got any attention was the issue about the blackmail tape and fake news. that was the main thing in the news conference, but i would accept there we re conference, but i would accept there were other things that were covered as well. in the 6pm news, the main coverage was around the dossier and the allegations but we did also talk about the questions around donald trump's business interests and what he's doing with those. across bbc news, on the news channel, on the
9:39 pm
website, on the radio, other parts of the story and the business side of the story and the business side of donald trump was covered as well. it felt watching that news conference that this is a very different kind of experience for reporters. journalists were chanting conduct business as usual and asking questions. it feels like the bbc will have to rethink in a different way how it deals with what the new president says. donald trump, for example, in one street could appear to change us policy towards china or nuclear weapons and there is no detail, it is not done any conventional way in terms of a news conference policy document, so that is difficult staff. —— in one feet. but in one week he will be presidents we have to treat this stuff seriously, examine it
9:40 pm
properly, and then decide whether we developed the coverage are not. to quote donald trump, this issue is number one. send us your thoughts on the coverage of donald trump or any aspect of bbc news. details of how to co nta ct aspect of bbc news. details of how to contact us at the end of the programme. someone your comments this week, that kicked off the annual debate to the extent that winter weather is newsworthy and the deployment of reporters to affected areas. friday morning sun to reporters braving the elements. they snow has died down and it has been a relatively calm morning. that is good news because it means that the high wind that was predicted have not materialised and the high tide here has passed without event. we
9:41 pm
had three hours of snow last night 18 6pm and 9pm. i came down very heavily and some of it has stuck. someone has written help in the snow, that is a sign of how treacherous conditions will be this morning. it is notjust the snow but it is also the ice on the pavement, it is also the ice on the pavement, it can be slippy and difficult conditions on the roads here. some people thought that a mountain was being made out of a mole hill. thank you for your comments this week. if you want to share your opinions appear on the programmes you can call us or e—mail us using the details on screen. you can find us on twitter and ehrlich at our website. —— and you look at. that is from us and we will be back to hear your thoughts about bbc coverage
